On this week of The Bachelorette, Ali must eliminate three guys and the drama in the house over Justin intensifies as he makes a bold gesture to show his feelings to Ali.
The first one-on-one date is with Roberto and Ali picks a very daring activity. First, the two fly by helicopter (why does Ali always take air transportation when she's so afraid of flying?).
Peppermint, birthdays and polar bears, oh my! Buddy makes a cake for the Coney Island Polar Bear Club, where he's invited to take a swim with the furry creatures. On top of that, Buddy's youngest son wants an ice-cream cake for his birthday.

The Bachelorette, Glee
There are lots of ways to handle awkward situations. Ignore them, which makes them worse. (See: this week's episodes of Breaking Bad and Glee.) Force them into the open, which can get emotional (Losing it with Jillian). Or just hit someone (Royal Pains). This week's episode of The Bachelorette reminded us that the one thing you should never do is change the subject to the weather. What's the best way to deal with an uncomfortable moment? See No. 1 on our list. Welcome to Top Moments, elephant-in-the-room edition.
The Bachelorette - Ali Fedotowsky
The women on The Bachelor get a bad rap for their fighting, but this week's The Bachelorette proved that guys can be just as catty. Chris Harrison, who can be seen hosting Friday's 2010 Scripps National Spelling Bee at 8/7c on ABC, explains to TVGuide.com that although Jonathan the weatherman got picked on, he's not a fan favorite, either. He also tells us why Ali is so gaga for Roberto.
TVGuide.com: What was up with Craig M. vs. the weatherman?
Chris Harrison: As much as I think we all felt a little sorry for Jonathan, he's not the fan favorite, either. You didn't see the guys exactly stand up and say...
Jeers to Ali Fedotowsky for keeping weatherman Jonathan in the picture on The Bachelorette. Sure, Canadian dental salesman (seriously, is there a better job description...
On this week's episode of The Bachelorette, Ali goes on her first two one-on-one dates and must send seven suitors packing.
Ali's first one-on-one date of the season is with Frank. She thinks he'll make for a lively and fun first date, but is also trying to figure out if there is any deeper connection there beyond their shared sense of humor. The date starts out in a vintage blue convertible, but trouble hits quickly. Just as the two are enjoying the views, the company and the vintage ride, the vintage part kicks in and the car rolls to a stop on the freeway. Instead of calling Triple AAA like a normal person, Ali is just (yes) too excited to start the date so she and Frank grab a cab and head to Hollywood. Ali, now known for her time on The Bachelor, is swarmed for photos and autographs and Frank deals with it graciously and is also able to interject his personality into the media attention of his famous date.
Lost - Matthew Fox, 24 - Kiefer Sutherland
Season finales provided a lot of healthy closure this week, at least according to our shrink Mitzi Cohen-McGinty, Ph.D. She says that The Biggest Loser is not just about how we look on the outside. She praised Glee for showing us that there is no "right" when it comes to the relationship between a child and the mother who gave her up for adoption. She thinks Jack and Chloe are totally 24's most codependent coworkers, so it's good that they've decided to spend some time apart. And finally, according to Dr. Cohen-McGinty, Lost's season finale is just a metaphor for the journey to self-actualization that we all must take — except, you know, while we're still truckin' on this mortal coil — and preferably from the couch of her stately Upper West Side salon. Welcome to Top Moments: Everybody in Therapy Edition.

24 and Law & Order aired their series finales on Monday night to middling ratings.
The Fox spy series drew only 8.9 million viewers, a 13 percent drop from its Season 7 finale. After 20 seasons, Law & Order went off the air with only 7.6 million viewers, down 12 percent from last week's episode and 5 percent down from last year's season finale.

The latest installment of The Bachelorette (Mon, 8/7c on ABC) has barely begun and already some men are holding back while others are perhaps revealing too much. TVGuide.com spoke with host Chris Harrison about Ali's awkward first episode, what he thought of Derrick's tale about his nickname "Shooter," why the guys are ganging up on Justin, and who's going to be sticking around for a while.
TVGuide.com: How do you think Ali did on her first night as the Bachelorette?
Chris Harrison: The first episode it's always a tough one. It's like starting to date — it's so uncomfortable. Who in the world is prepared to sit there and watch five limos of 25 people pull up? It's so awkward, but...
And away we go! After exiting early last season, Ali makes her triumphant return as another season of The Bachelorette begins!
First off, let me just say that I didn't realize how happy I was that, of all the girls from last season, it was Ali coming back until tonight. I am really excited to see how much she's changed since The Bachelor and now that she's been through not only the experience of TV once, but having lost love and tried to win it back, she'll know better than anyone else how to cherish this experience and, hopefully, will be able to tell which guys are and are not cherishing their time with her.
Here's my first impressions of some of the new guys:
